Auto Express have reported that Audi are considering a hot Audi Q2 - the SQ2 or even RSQ2.

SQ2 model is likely to use the four-cylinder 2.0-litre turbo from the Audi S3 - with 296bhp and quattro four-wheel drive. It would slot into the maker's growing SQ range of hot SUVs alongside the SQ5 and new SQ7.

Stephen Knirsch, Audi's board member for technical development, is quoted in the report, saying that an SQ2 "is something [they're] looking at. It would be relatively easy to do with MQB".

"The Q2 shares a lot with the A3, but we have to see what appetite there is for the more expensive Q2 models first."

The new Q2 SUV already features the same Progressive Steering system as the S3, so adding that car's drivetrain is a logical next step. However, Audi insiders have hinted that there may be even more power in the pipeline, possibly featuring the 362bhp five-cylinder engine from the RS3 - and the hot version of the Q2's bigger brother, the RS Q3.

With the regular Q2 range still yet to go on sale globally, it would at least be a year or so before any kind of hotted-up Audi Sport variant hits the road, so don't expect the SQ2 to debut until late-2017 or early 2018.
